Ask a Bears fan what they think of Jay Cutler and get ready for just about any kind of response. Many will say how overrated the quarterback is and how he’s hurting the Bears. Some will still defend Cutler until the last moment, using his stats and highlight reel ability as proof.
In a sense, all of that is true. It’s impossible to put Cutler into just one category. One thing, however, is unarguable. Statistically Cutler will become the greatest quarterback in Bears history.
Sure, being better than the likes of Moses Moreno, Chad Hutchinson and Rick Mirer isn’t a huge accomplishment. But that doesn’t change the fact that Cutler keeps climbing up the statistical leader board among Bears quarterbacks.
Cutler already has the team record for most passing yards, completions and attempts in Bears history. He also has the best quarterback rating and the most 300-yard passing games.
Last season was arguably the ugliest for the Bears in recent history, and Cutler still nearly set records for most yards and touchdowns in a single season.
Cutler won’t go to the Hall of Fame like Sid Luckman, and it seems like a longshot for him to win a Super Bowl with the Bears like Jim McMahon. But that doesn’t change the fact that the Bears have never had anyone as talented playing quarterback as Jay Cutler.
